Description

Glamorous fashion editor Mary Russell’s personal photographs capture the effervescence of the 1960s and 1970s from within the international fashion and art scenes.

As Paris fashion correspondent for prestigious publications such as Glamour, Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, and the New York Times, and as photo stylist for Helmut Newton, David Bailey, Lord Snowdon, Francesco Scavullo, and Henry Clarke, the American journalist and photographer Mary Russell not only captured the mood of the international clique of elite bohemians who ruled the Parisian art and fashion world in the 1960s and 1970s, but quickly became a central part of it.

The passionate young American in Paris participated in fashion history as it happened and plunged head first into the international Jet Set. Russell developed intimate friendships with her entourage, traveling from fashion events in Paris and London to glamorous holidays in Saint Moritz, Saint-Tropez, and the Venetian Lido with the people who invented cool modernity, and, most importantly, capturing them on her Nikon as a friend would have, mining the mood of the period and exploding the boundaries between reportage and fashion.

Published here for the first time, the charmed lives of the Beautiful People of the 1960s and 1970s are brought to life in this collection of intimate portraits of the creative high society and the cultural underground: Andy Warhol’s visit to Paris with the Factory, the circle of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé—Loulou de la Falaise, Betty and François Catroux, Karl Lagerfeld—Françoise Sagan, Charlotte Rampling, Isabelle Adjani, Jane Birkin, Peter Beard, Gunter Sachs and various playboys, and many others. The photographs are accompanied by Russell’s personal memoirs.
